Your Pet Tributes'Ruger'

You were the only one family I had for 16 years. After my mother abandoned me, and my family pretty much deserted me, you were all I had. You were my strength, my best friend, and my family. I wish you could know how much I love you. And how much I miss you everyday.
I remember the day you left like it was yesterday. I remember your last breathe, I remember crying and begging and then I remember everything just stopping. Time itself, froze. I realized I was holding my breathe, in hopes that you would start breathing again. I had only turned 16 5 days before. I was so young, you were such a huge part of my life. I have no idea where I would be today if it wasn't for you. I know it's been, 8 years now, but I still cry when I look at your pictures.
I finally got the courage to get another dog, she's a golden too. Same color as you, and when shes full grown, she'll probably be the same size. I know you would love her if you could meet her.
You were my hero, you fought through soo much, and you kept fighting. You were soo strong, I don't know how you stayed so strong, when I weak. You were sick for months, and I was healthy, yet you were stronger than I. You never let it show that you were sick. The nights you were just too weak to go upstairs, I'd stay by your side on the floor. The bond you and I had, will never die.
Even now, I am crying like a small child while writing this because I remember everything we went through, you and I. I love you Ruger, I always will. And I miss you more and more everyday. I just wish you were still here so I could hug you one more time. I miss you soo much. I love you.
